Former German tennis champion Boris Becker highlighted the rarity of the performance of Nadalwinner 14 times of Roland-Garros. “For me it is clear that Nadal will never be equaled. He is the best player of all time on clay. He has won 14 times at Roland Garros. We can say clearly, at least for me, that “There will never be anyone like him. On clay, Nadal is something beyond that and it will take a long time to see someone like him.”

Concerning current events and the rise of young people Carlos Alcaraz et Jannik Sinnerwinners of the first two Grand Slams of the season, Becker has difficulty comparing them. “It is impossible to say which of the two players will dominate tennis in the coming years.
